Chinese money is pouring into Hokkaido at a much greater scale than imagined.

No doubt, there are additional land purchases by Chinese money not reported to the government.
More ominous is the acquisition of farmland by Chinese capital. For example, Adidas Response Boost Womens Vista Grey/Silver Metallic/Solar Pink Running Shoes V84439,Nike Men's Shoe Air Force 1 Mid 07 315123-029Adidas Ultra Boost Womens Sun Glow/Solid Grey/Purple Glow Running Shoes V79820,.

Chinese investments are particularly active along the Pacific coast of Hokkaido, especially in the cities of Tomakomai and Kushiro, both equipped with port facilities.

China’s penetration is more clearly visible in the town of Shiranuka, which lies next door to Kushiro. High schools there have designated Chinese as a selective foreign language subject for second- and third-year students. adidas Originals Junior Gazelle 2 Trainer CP565,Nike Air Max Zero Unisex Shoe 789695-002Nike Junior Air Force 1 Trainer CP651,.

What China is doing in Hokkaido is far from constructing strategic bases in foreign lands as part of its “One Belt, One Road” initiative to connect it to Europe. But China’s intention of slowly penetrating Hokkaido over a long period of time is clear. Beijing’s ideal outcome is to create a situation in which people in Hokkaido cannot move forward without relying on China, the diplomatic source said.
